The Federal Government has warned of a possible fresh lockdown of the country over the violation of the guidelines on the ease of the lockdown in the country.
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19, Dr. Sani Aliyu gave the warning on Thursday in Abuja, at the 27th joint national briefing of the committee.
According to him, Nigerians must continue to respect and follow all the guidelines instituted, failure which it may be pushed to review and possibly change them if compliance with the eased lockdown guidelines continues to be a problem.
“While we have allowed the relaxation of the lockdown, we are putting measures in place to curb COVID-19 spread. Our modelling shows that the positive effects of full compliance with the Eased lockdown will be very similar to the effect of a full lockdown.
“This is why we need everyone to fully comply with all the guidelines issued. Please respect and follow all the guidelines we have instituted. If we continue to see violations of these guidelines, we will be pushed to review and possibly change them,” Aliyu said.
